Why Volunteer with LIFT OFF?


Volunteering with LIFT OFF is rewarding and fun. It gives you the chance to meet new people, develop skills and interests and give something back to the community.

Don't take our word for it though!  One of our fantastic current Student Volunteers, Gemma Cargill, has written a piece about her LIFT OFF experience.  Gemma orginially met the LIFT OFF Team as a pupil from Kirkland High School who took part in LIFT OFF 2 Success way back in 2006 and after going to Abertay University to study Psychology, became a LIFT OFF Student Volunteer in 2011.

Application Process

If you are interested in volunteering with LIFT OFF please fill out the application found on the homepage

We'll ask you for some information on your experience but don't worry if you haven't done much work like this before. Just let us know why you'd like to volunteer.

We'll ask for two references, we prefer an academic and a character reference but just provide us with contacts you have.

You'll then be invited to a training session. The training session is a great opportunity to meet other volunteers and learn a lot more about what your role is as student volunteer. We'll provide you with all the practical advice you need to volunteer with us.

Once this is complete you'll be a fully fledged student volunteer. Woo! You'll then start to receive emails about up and coming events.


We can't wait to hear from you!
